[ad_1]

The Super Eagles of Nigeria started their preparation for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in earnest with an inspiring performance and 1-0 win against the Pharaohs of Egypt in an international friendly match at the Stephen Keshi Stadium Asaba on Tuesday, March 26 2019. Completesports.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU rates the performance of the Gernot Rohr’s men, player-by-player.

DANIEL AKPEYI 6/10

He was largely untested in the 45 minutes he spent on the pitch. Handled the ball well and was good with his distribution.

SHEHU ABDULLAHI 6/10

The right-back was at his marauding best but was still let down by his poor delivery.

WILLIAM TROOST-EKONG 7/10

The captain on the night was a rock in the defence for the Super Eagles. He stood up to the challenge of the Egyptian forwards.

LEON BALOGUN 7/10

Restored in the starting line-up after he was benched for Kenneth Omeruo in the last game against Seychelles. He put up a solid performance at the back and made a number vital clearance in the game.

JAMILU COLLINS 6/10

Failed to replicate his performance from the last game against Seychelles. He was troubled by the Egyptians which limited his forays upfront.

WILFRED NDIDI 7/10

Continued from where he left off against Seychelles even though he fizzled out a bit after the break.

JOHN OGU 7/10

The powerful midfielder didn’t do his chances of a regular playing berth in the team any harm as he put up a fine display before his substitution as a result of injury.

ALEX IWOBI 6/10

Gave a glimpse of his best even though he never really hit the height expected of him.

MOSES SIMON 6/10

Tried too hard to impress with little or nothing to show for it. He will do well not playing to the gallery in subsequent games.

HENRY ONYEKURU 7/10

He was a thorn in the flesh of the Egyptians with his trickery on the ball. Showed he can be relied upon in future.

PAUL ONUACHU 8/10

Scored a breathtaking goal in the first minute of the game. The Egyptians had a torrid time stopping him and his hold-up play was excellent too.

SUBSTITUTES

IKECHUKWU EZENWA 7/10

Produced two superb saves towards the end of the game to deny the Egyptians from scoring the much needed equaliser.

SEMI AJAYI 5/10

Replaced the injured John Ogu, but didn’t do enough to affect the game positively.

OGHENAKARO ETEBO 5/10

Helped to tidy things in midfield after replacing Alex Iwobi.
